Rite of Spring
November 11th 7:45 pm
Award winning Choreographer, Seeta Patel reimagines this infamous ballet in the powerful classical Indian dance style Bharatanatyam. Igor Stravinsky’s avant-garde score stunned Paris audiences when it debuted in 1913 & has been hugely influential ever since.
Discover a transformative re-telling of this pagan folk story told through intricate rhythmic footwork, expressive prowess, dynamic movement and stunning visuals, delivered by worldclass performers.
Set to be one of the most exciting flirtations between East & West in current times, the production will look beyond notions of the exotic, orientalist perceptions of Eastern classical arts.
The evening will showcase some of the finest Indian classical dance talent across the globe in an exciting bridge between two very technical, powerful & evocative art forms (Western classical music & Indian classical dance).
